and neighborhoods across the country, if something çhappens, there is usually a local business that knows the family and been dealing with for a while and says that will help them out in some way or another. i remember last year i was traveling in the floods of north dakota. there was a family i was talking to at one of the shelters who lost their home. he said the one good thing was he did not lose his car. he had sent it to the shop the day before. the shop where it was getting fixed was not affected by the floods. then he said he went back yesterday to pick up my car. as he picked up hisç car, the y said it is ok. he showed me the bill. it was like $800 bill for repairs. it said "paid in fullñr." he said take care of yourself in your family. he picked up the tab, a small- business garage. that happened every day on small scales and now on larger scales. the ndrf is giving us the framework to take what people are doing it expanded to bring together the businesses that may not know the individual but billy to other -- may not know the individual but know each other and know how to bri

that will result in a reduction of local government spending during the period. so essentially you have an economic reduction associated with higher electricity prices. you have an economic gain associated with the local energy efficiency and other program commitments and second contraction associated with local government spending. to get to the bottom line in terms of what that means for the economy we believe the electricity cost also be in the neighborhood of 13 million. again, supervisor, that is in reference to the $18 number. if that jumps by 50% it is reasonable to think this number will jump by around 50% as well. the 4.3 million annual reduction in government spending, that comes from the security payments and the program costs, that would not change regardless of what the final rates would be. then the benefits coming from the $6 million spending on profession services, energy efficiency and go solar sfs would be benefits. according to our modeling this represents a less of 95 million jobs annually and reduction in the city's economy about $8 million during the four and a half years of t
